While it may not be safe yet to hit the beaches and go for a much-needed R&R by the ocean, you can recreate that chill island vibe through fashion.
On Sept. 30, lifestyle brand HALOHALO dropped their latest collection halohaloworld that brings the island living feel to the city. Known for their banig totes and homeware together with their casual island-chic apparel under halohalo souvenirs, their newest drop features lightweight pieces and accessories that you can wear comfortably on a warm day out. And if you’re a big fan of coconuts, you’re in luck.
Coming in their first “banig not banig” print, this multipurpose accessory is not only stylish, but also functional. You can use this silky chiffon piece to accessorize your halohalo bags, a cover-up over your bikini after you take a dip in the pool, a bandana to hold your hair back or as a scarf to wrap around your neck or layer over your mask. It comes in two prints—coconut and santan—which you can wear together and tie into different looks. The souvenir scarf retails for P2,000.
Serving us another wrap-up moment, halohalo released this cream cotton jersey top that can be worn in multiple ways. With roses embroidered all over, you can tie this top however you want it—wrapped all over, worn backward or just tied once. Match this top over your fave bikinis or tanks or wear it with a pair of jeans. There’s a simple elegance to this top that suits both the island life and the city buzz. It retails for P3,000.
Layer it on top of a sports tank or wear it alone, this loose-fitting button-up goes well for both cool and sunny days. The cabana shirt comes in two versions—in avocado rayon with a bulsa bag embroidered and in ube cotton jersey with a cute lil coconut tree. Match this tee with a presko pair of lounge or cycling shorts for a fresh walk under the sun. The cabana shirt retails for P2,200.
To add to the two pieces serving us a coconut moment, halohaloworld also comes with cute accessories that complete the beach babe look. Cop their souvenir coconut anklet barefoot or with a trusty pair of sandals and pair it with their souvenir coconut necklace. The anklet retails for P2,400 while the necklace retails for P1,800.
If you’re not the type to go nuts over coconuts (but why though?), you can also clasp on their rosas necklace and match it with the rosas wrap top. Inspired by their rosas banig weave, the necklace retails for P1,800.
